    Hello!

    EA Japan website announces that Origin was published with publish 58 at the last extra maintenance.

    And also: all the shards will be published with publish58 at the next maintenance.

    I think Chrissay is now out of office, so Herald is not to be updated.

    Someone from devs would confirm it.

    we have two community reps now, seems that somehow news of this type would have been announced

    nothing about it on the Origin forums, and no shouting here in the Hall

    don't know what to tell you, Athos

    I was on Origin Shard this afternoon at 2PM pacific time when a system message popped up saying shard was going down for a publish. Therefore, I assume it was published at that time as I logged out and have not yet returned to the shard. But don't know for sure.

    You'd think someone would have access to update the herald or something. . .

    Concussion blow still does high damage they didn't fix it like they said they would. Good job EA!

    I think this patch came two weeks early, it was suppose to a good april fools joke.

    I'm only able to check a few things on Origin that were included in the notes for Publish 58 when it went live on Test Center:

    • Cupid will no longer block movement in Felucca - This seems to be working correctly.
    • Players will no longer get multiple gumps with Cupid - Only got one gump.
    • Players can now use the Xmas Tree Deeds to place non decorated trees year round - Uh, no this hasn't changed. Tried to use a Christmas tree deed on Origin just now and got the message I have to wait until next December to put up my tree.
    • Re-enabled access to the top level in Wrong dungeon. - Not quite sure what this one is about. You can get to all three levels of Wrong dungeon on Origin. (Access to the bottom level, the big room with Sicarii in it, is via one of the sparklies behind the cells on the east side of the top level.) Had no problem getting into Wrong via the normal entrance....
    The Publish 58 notes for TC don't talk about reinstating the use of the BOS, but I think we heard something hinting that was an oversight. I experimented a bit on Origin and found that 20,000 gold pieces weighs 134 stones and uses up one bag of sending charge to send it to the bank. (I checked on another shard, Lake Superior, and 20,000 gold pieces weighs 400 stones.)

    Forgot one other thing. Sherry still says some towns are invaded on Origin, so I will go do a quick run through and see what's up.

    Well, the invaded towns on Origin only have corrupted townsfolk. I did not spot any invasion forces or crimson dragons.

    ...and the pendulum swings back the other way, with neck-snapping acceleration. :hahaha:

    They should just take gold off monsters entirely, let them drop hides scales scrolls gems ingredients etc and have all such resources tradeable with NPCs for gold.

    A new publish is released and we have no announcements either before or after. What happened to, "Publish 58 will be released at the next scheduled maintenance and the patch notes can be found here?"

    Grrrr. I'll look into that.

    A restriction had been placed on the sparklies so only people who had completed the Halloween event were able to access Sicarii's lair using them. This restriction has been lifted.

    Right, the bottom level as opposed to the top. Big open area, often used for player run events when its not full of all sorts of nasty mob spawn.

    Nice to hear its back.

    Oh, and a big THANKS to the devs for the changes. My bard is very happy and once again, useful.

    Thanks for the explanation, Regine. Consider that change to be successful on Origin then, because the character I used for checking that didn't complete any portion of the Halloween event related to Sicarii. She was still hanging out down there, though. Is she still supposed to be there?

    And what is the changes to Spell weaving??

    And still nobody has bothered to enlighten us about the questions concerning the Spellweaving changes. I wish that one day they'd annouce changes in a way that at least experienced players would be able to understand them.

    I haven't heard a word from the community manager for weeks. I somehow hope that they're all busy with the upcoming SA release.

    I think Chrissay is the only community rep left now, DevilsOwn. She also helps support DAOC. Joanne is no longer with EA. DAOC got an announcement a while back about her departure, but we didn't.

    Do appreciat you taking the time to answer our questions but could you please address the Spellweaving queries?

    For me they were the most significant update of the patch yet there appears to be no change.

    ah, thank you Tina, was totally unaware of that

    I think they all just have too much going on.... will be nice when the economy gets back in shape, maybe EA/Mythic will not spread their resources so thinly

    I didn't work on the Spellweaving changes so I do not want to give inaccurate information.

    That's what happens when they let her out of her cage. She's hopeless! :yell:

    Well thanks for the update, could you please attempt to bring this to the attention of the appropriate dev, i have alraedy posted a bug report. Its just annoying because my favourite skill seemed to be getting some changes and i was left whole heartedly disappointed when i heard all that happened was one spell was made to work how it was originally intended, one had a sound added and the most used spell which sounded like some good changes were going to be made...got nothing.

    Just a quick question....but did I miss the announcement about
    Publish 58 going live on all shards? Not that I mind, but it does seem that some bugs are alive and kicking. Did Origin get this Publish a couple
    days ago? Just curious is all.

    And I did check UOHerald and did not see anything.

    Deb, haven't seen anything in the Herald either. Just going off the info in athos' original post at the top of this thread that indicates EA Japan announced "yesterday" (not sure when they got the announcement) that Origin had already received Publish 58 and the rest of the shard's would get it in their next maintenance.

    Does LS have Pub 58 now? I noticed that BOS seemed to have changed and gold seems to be in line with what someone posted above, 1,000 gp weighs 7 stones.

    But as someone else pointed out, Christmas tree deeds won't let you place them yet.

    This is apparently still broken. Just checked Despise on Sonoma... There are no candles, not monsters, and no Baracoon. When I tried to summon the champ it told me the champ had already been challenged.

    Another problem... I just poped desert, and got a 3 candle reptile. After killing every single spawn monster (Yes, i literally mean every single one... there is not a single lizzard man or snake left in all of the desert area) Im still at only 3 red candle.. not a single white candle and no additional monsters have spawned to kill. Grrrrrrrrr

    No they won't.

    Even though thieves are completely able to attempt stealing valuable Power Scrolls they will continue to steal nothing and just spend all of their time whining to the Devs about "the good old days" and how they are now useless. They are, and always have been useless griefers of course. EVERY other template/player in the game detested them and realized that they were pure griefers from day one. Unfortunately it took the Devs a few years to pick up on this and make things right.

    The best part is that the few thieves still around from the old days feel that they are entitled or owed something because at one point their griefing template was broken and horribly overpowered. Funny stuff...:) ...la

    I don't want to sound annoying.... But we've been asking about the meaning of the announced Spellweaving changes a week ago. Still nobody can answer us, and yet the publish is going live. Isn't that a bit risky to put something on live shards, while nobody can explain what the publish really changes?

    I'm not trying to be a pain in the arse here or blame Chrissay. Isn't there someone else in the office that can update the Herald when she's out? Is the team that short staffed?

  48. Reactive armor & magic reflect are now removed on death... however... players who stone scribe on/cast those spells/stone it off/then die, gain 4 physical resist each time it happens. I thought someone had just ward removaled me so I did it again, now I have +8 phys.

    The only spellweaving change we have made in this publish is:

    Gift of life will now offer to resurrect you after death

    Other than that spellweaving should be the same. If you are noticing other changes please let us know.

    They mean they have no idea what that means, since that's what its always done anyway.
